I can't believe this hotel hasn't been closed down. I stayed there on my second visit to New York a few years ago but after two horrendous nights checked out and, thanks to a friendly, sympathetic New Yorker, found somewhere equally central, inexpensive, spotlessly clean and welcoming (Portland Square Hotel - stay there instead!) The lift at The Aladdin wouldn't... More

I arrived directly with a friend from Newark-airport in this carnage-hotel. This was the most disgusting place I have ever been or seen: no A/C, no windows (!), very small bed, sigarette-burns on the carpet. Repulsive bathroom with gangsters running around. I thought we were going to be raped or murdered. We havne't slept for a minute due to the... More

Myself and my friend stayed here in summer 2001 whilst at uni - perhaps because we were students then, and didn't expect much, we weren't disappointed. I don't remember any mice, I just remember the room being basic but more than adquate, the staff being helpful and the atmosphere in the place being very good. Yes it's not luxury but... More

I arrived here with my son in 2001 and he was 7 at the time. Had booked a couple of nights here as part of my round the world trip. We had arrived from the UK and this was our first destination of the year. I agree with a previous poster,,, if you expect nothing then you are not disappointed... More

This was by far the worst hotel I have ever been in. My husband surprised me with a trip to NY a few years back. He booked 1 night here. We drove past the place like 5 times, the sign was so small. When we got into the room, all I could do was cry. It was sloppily painted flourescent... More

Hello reader(s), I read the comments of the people from Brighton, Brussels, Toronto and Chicago. I stayed in NY's Aladdin for one week with 3 friends in July 1998. Since the night price was pretty low compared with what you normally pay in a New York hotel, we expected nothing. That turned out to be the right attitude: the rooms... More

This is the worst hotel we've ever been. This place ruined my wife's first visit of NY. When we saw the room (expensive because we took a single room with a sink in the room...) my wife started to cry, everything was dirty (we couldn't see through the windows because it was so dirty, walls and shelves dirty) and no...

I stayed here for one night in May 2000. It was without a doubt the most repulsive dive I have ever stayed in. There was no air conditioning or screens on the windows.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
